Thoughts from St Alphonsus for Every Day-June 23

To you who have sinned, I say, that you ought to be ashamed to have offended so great and so good a God. But you have no reason to be ashamed of confessing the sins which you have committed. Was it shame­ful in St Mary Magdalen to acknowledge publicly at the feet of Jesus Christ that she was a sinner? By her confession she became a Saint.
